Umbellifer 1: Cow Parsley

Identification of plants in the Apiaceae (Umbellifers) can be a bit difficult.  Here is the first of four which are not too hard.  It's a start.

First up is Cow Parsley which grows along the lanes, in the fields and even under the shade of the woodland canopy.

In bloom now at Filnore Woods and everywhere.

Pure white flowers on thin stalks.

Very pointed, ferny leaves but not as flat and shiny as Hemlock, which is in a later post.
